Lovely and romantic

Had such a nice stay at this inn, with the added bonus of an on site massage. Chris and Leon were gracious hosts, accommodations were perfect.


A hidden gem

We went to mine herkimer diamonds and found a gem of a bed and breakfast


Will definitely go back!

We visited the area to go to the Herkimer Diamond Mines, and were very pleased with the Bellinger's proximity to there as well as the Canal Cruises, food etc. Leon and Chris were very personable and friendly without being too pushy. The breakfast was great and very easy to customize every day. The whole house was gorgeous, obviously well cared for and the dishes were exquisite. We stayed in the Heritage Rose room and were very pleased with it, the closet was huge, big enough to put suitcases etc in. The AC was great as it was pretty warm when we were there. One night we sat out back at the fire pit with the owners as well as another very nice couple, great way to relax! There was a sauna, treadmill and hottub available, though we did not use them this time, we will in the future! Their dog and cats were friendly but not too pushy, just adorable. We will definitely come back next time we want to go back to the mines :)


Outstanding

5 on May 28, 2016

We arrived early and was welcomed into their beautiful home despite the hour. Because we were the only guest midweek, Chris upgraded our room to the largest one. It was a beautiful retreat- just what we were hoping for. We were treated like royalty ! My husband and I just loved the cats- who were more like dogs. If I am ever in this area again, Bellinger Rose will be our destination,


Frequent Stayers Who Give the Highest Recommendation

Chris and Leon are wonderful hosts-- very warm and welcoming without being the least bit intrusive. The bedrooms and house are amazingly beautiful without being overdone with nick nacks. The breakfasts are gourmet quality without being overdone or too sweet. They also are very accommodating in allowing you to choose your breakfast. Chris's massages are amazing! The surrounding Mohawk Valley and small towns around it are beautiful and historic anytime of year We have been coming for over a decade and it is always on our list of places to go for a short get-away. Note they do have cats, but we come despite my wife's allergies and they keep the place very clean so she can last without her allergy medication


Fantastic anniversary

5 on November 29, 2015

My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary with a stay at Belinger Rose. It was our second visit there. Chris and Leon are outstanding hosts and although we didn't see any of Leon this time around Chris certainly carried the day. Not only that but she is an incredible massage therapist. I highly recommend both the B&B and the massage.


2nd time staying at Bellinger Rose.
